A p.s.:

Although the Atomica application is handy (accessed through a system
tray icon), exactly the same functionality exists on their website.

I get the digest, but somehow the listmanager doesn't know my email
address. Strange.

Anyhow here's my post re acronyms etc. Can't remember who first asked.

Acronymfinder is great. The best way to access it is through Atomica.

You can download and install a little utility at no cost
( that lets you ALT + click on any word or
acronym and get a definition, thesaurus, encyclopedia entry. It even
looks things up in the dictionary that is most likely to give the
authoritive explanation (eg. medical, legal, computer,
Acronymfinder...). On the rare occasion it doesn't come up with
anything, it runs a google search for you.

This is the best web utility I have seen. I use it at work, where I have
fast internet service, and wouldn't be without it. I don't think you
would want to bother if you had dial-up modem service.

For future reference, I strongly recommend

I hunt up a lot of acronyms when writing telcom manuals (is there any
other industry more plagued with TLA-disease?) and this site is, IMHO,
easily the best. (Incidentally, it also came up with Time Sharing
Option/Interactive System Productivity Facility.) If it can't supply the
acronym, it provides a list of alternative search engines, too.
